Bayalpata Hospital rests on a remote hillside in the Far Western region of Nepal. While the rural nature of Achham presents challenges for road systems, access to medicine and technology, food security, and education, the region does exhibit beautiful scenery. Sunrise and sunset magnify the raw landscape, which lies at the foothills of the Himalayas. Here, a glorious fiery sun drifts behind the far hills beyond one of the hospital staff quarters.
